IDH1 and IDH2 Mutation Analysis Exon 4, Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) Tissue
IDH1/IDH2 mutational status is a prognostic marker in individuals with low- and high-grade gliomas. Aids in distinguishing a primary from a secondary glioblastoma.
Polymerase Chain Reaction/Sequencing
DNA isolation: Sun-Sat
New York DOH Approval Status
Tumor Tissue: Formalin fix (10 percent neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin embed tissue. Protect from excessive heat. Tissue block will be returned after testing. Transport tissue block or 4 unstained 5-micron slides. (Min: 3 slides) Transport block and/or slide(s) in a tissue transport kit (ARUP Supply #47808) available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™or contact ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787.
Room temperature. Also acceptable: Refrigerated. Ship in cooled container during summer months.
Less than 25 percent tumor. DNA extracted by a non-CLIA lab. Specimens fixed/processed in alternative fixatives (alcohol, Prefer) or heavy metal fixatives (B-4 or B-5). Decalcified specimens.
For FFPE specimens include surgical pathology report.
If multiple specimens (blocks or slides) are sent to ARUP, they must be accompanied by one of the following: an order comment indicating that the ARUP pathologist should choose the specimen most appropriate for testing (e.g., "Choose best block"), or individual orders for each sample submitted. A Pathologist Block Selection Fee (ARUP test code 3002076) will be added to orders that utilize the first option. If multiple specimens are sent to ARUP without a request for pathologist block/slide selection or individual orders, they will be held until clarification is provided.
Ambient: Indefinitely; Refrigerated: Indefinitely; Frozen: Unacceptable
